[Book of the XVIth century]. AMEROT (Adrien). Hadriani Amerotii Suessionensis Compendiu[m] graec[a]e gra[m]matices, perspicua brevitate co[m]plectens, quic[quid] est octo partium orationis. [At the colophon] : Lovanii apud Thedoricum Martinum Alostensem, 1520. in-4, [92] f. [sign. a-e 4, 2e-7e 4, f-h 4, I-R 4], old soft parchment, smooth spine, title in ink (boards stained and distorted, lower board gnawed at head and corner, worm's work in margin of 1st third of volume; folding plate missing). Extremely rare first edition of the first Greek grammar composed in the Netherlands, the work of Adrien Amerot (Soissons, c. 1490 - Louvain, 1560), professor at the University of Louvain. Only 6 copies are located on the USTC (no. 400428). The quality of the printing in Greek and Roman characters was underlined by Brunet who considered this book rare (Brunet I, 260). ERRATUM: Careful old marginal annotations, including a handwritten mention in Greek in a phylactery at v° of the last leaf.
